No part of Stonehenge will close while work continues to build the new visitor centre which will open at the end of 2013.
Once the new visitor building is up and running, work will start on removing the existing outdated facilities, building a small, security ‘hub’, tucked into the landscape and the car park will be grassed over.
The restoration of the landscape near the monument will be well underway by summer 2014.
